Chelsea transfer news : Chelsea focusing on Andre Silva transfer
Chelsea are trusting Andre Silva can understand their striking crisis but the deal hinges on Alvaro Morata replacing him at Sevilla.
Air conditioning Milan ace Silva is on advance at the Spanish club and Chelsea will not be able to sign him unless they land a replacement.
But Blues chiefs are hoping to solve the problem by loaning Morata, 26, to Sevilla so Silva can come back to Italy before finishing a move to London.
The £65million Spanish international has struggled since moving to Stamford Bridge – scoring only multiple times in 72 diversions.
And Maurizio Sarri is desperate to strengthen as he looks to secure a top-four spot, with Arsenal undermining to jump the Blues.
He has hit form in La Liga, however, with eight strikes in 16 matches and has done enough to convince Chelsea to make a move.
Unsettled Morata started his vocation at Real Madrid and a return to his homeland would be an attractive proposition.
